It’s taken much longer than we ever thought, but the new London Bridge and North Kent Lines maps are now live.
So, what took us so long? It’s just down to a case of bad planning – although the signalling plans arrived some months before the work was to be carried out, we didn’t carry out our normal assessment of how much we need to change on our maps. That, coupled with plenty of other work and holidays meant we’re running slightly behind.
The good news is that the final layout of London Bridge and the surrounding area will now be much, much easier to draw, and we’re fully anticipating the next updates will be ready much closer to the event.
We’re also updating the London Waterloo map in the next few days – we won’t make an announcement as it’s trivial, but you can expect the new points and signalling around the low numbered platforms to be shown on the map soon.
Only recently discovered your mapping system : fantastic…!
South Wales is my region of interest, and I noticed a slight trackwork mistake
at the west end of Cardiff Central : west of signal 2566… The diamond crossing
is actually 2 x separate switched points allowing access from the up Bridgend
line (and reversing sidings on the up side) to any / all platforms (especially P4)…
Just read about the Newport map, so must have a look at it now…!
Keep up the brilliant work…!
